The dawn of spring has blessed me with a light spirit and a deep sense of contentment. All is well when you can go outside barefoot. Naftalie and I are in all our glory when the sun is beaming and we are outside experiencing the elements.

    Oh look at our little angel doing her gardening! She’s a girl after my own heart. I love the way you captured this, Shannon. I think about you when I’m transplanting little seedlings and raking the dirt into rows. So much life everywhere we look. God is awesome. Meme loves you both.

    It must be so fun to watch her learn all about dirt and grass for the first time. What are you guys planting?

    Molly, the last frost is May 18th here so I’m starting seeds indoors this weekend (it actually snowed last night). I found a pile of lumber at Lowes and asked someone if I could have it (yes!), so I’ll build the raised beds as soon as it hits 60 degrees. I’ve got lots of plans for squash, tomatoes, carrots, peas, peppers, potatoes, and several herbs; we’ll see how the baby seedlings grow.

    That’s awesome that you just got free lumber. It’s amazing what you can find for free (or super cheap) if you just ask around in your neighborhood or on Craigslist. A lot of times, gardeners are willing to share slips of perennials.
    I usually plant a ton of different things, and most of them don’t amount to much (I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had withered peas or 18-inch cornstalks), but every year I get better and better at getting things to grow. Last year Brady and I were practically intoxicated with the success of our squash and tomatoes. They were our pride and joy, I tell you. It’s so exciting! This year we’re doing corn, cucumbers, squash, tomatoes and lots of other stuff from seed, and I’m so excited to see what turns out.

    I want some garden tomatoes, please. Will they be ready by July?
